Was this file created with Access 2013 or 2016?
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Get ready i think it was 97
Expert:  WesPCDr replied 10 months ago.
With Access 97, the repair tools are not as good. I was unable to import the database using Access 2013.This means the database is corrupt. The only chance is to try to recover using the import method. This is the best article I found since I don't have Access 97. "What eventually worked was to open the corrupted database and manually export each object from the corrupted database to a brand new database. I was able to do this with the export tools in the ribbon bar and by selecting “Access” as my export option. I did have to create the new, blank database first; the database to export all of the data to. "http://www.lmhproductions.com/237/microsoft-access-id-is-not-an-index-in-this-table/
